I had to remove a Seagate SATA 2.5" drive from HP laptop and use in
external USB case on a desktop (to repair XP on the laptop). Everything
went fine, BUT :
"When the desktop box is turned off why does the laptop drive 'thrash'
the heads?" I can hear the drive seeking the heads - sounds like all the
way in/out - repeatedly. Was I doing harm ? I unplugged the USB cable, put
back in laptop and it did work fine, but wondering what was happening. (
The USB case did NOT have a power switch - just a usb connector to PC.)
